I have used the emacs flycheck part on ESS R buffers.

And it seemed to work as advertised. No hangs or crashes that I recall. 
I've mostly used it on smallish ESS *.R buffers. I recall longer buffers 
took a while to check, but IIRC this was not an issue - I could navigate 
elsewhere to work.

However, I unplugged flycheck recently.

The out-of-the-box settings in lintr were not pleasing to me.

See the screenshots on the lintr page above for some examples of what the 
settings are.

Maybe when I get some time I'll revise them more to my liking and plug it 
back in.

I did not notice where/whether customizations are/can be done.

Does anyone have a pointer to easy customization of lintr?
